James Díaz, Fifth Year Graduate Student in Composition, curated a music playlist for I CARE IF YOU LISTEN, an award-winning multimedia hub for living music creators powered by American Composers Forum. Part of their ListN Up series, Díaz features the work of other composers in the Music Department (past and present), including Tyshawn Sorey, the Penn Sound Collective project between Flannery, Ania, and Erin, and the late James Primosch.
ListN Up is a series of artist-curated playlists that offer an intimate sonic portrait of contemporary artists by showcasing the diverse and stylistically varied music that influences their creative practice.
Hi, I’m James Diaz, a Colombian composer and electronic musician based in Philadelphia. I’m excited to share this playlist with you. I hope you’ll allow yourself to dive into these different sound worlds by these unique composers and artists.
